Publisher's Summary

Salvation and annihilation meet at one degree. One man's dream of providing clean drinking water for millions, tapped from the polar ice, sparks a conflict of humanity, science, big business, and environmental extremism. But no one can foresee the true danger hidden deep within the ice, an enemy more deadly than any could imagine, and an apocalyptic horror mankind may not survive.

Critic Reviews

“If Freezing Point is (Dionne’s) first novel, I’d sure like to read her second. Here’s a writer with a very bright future indeed.” (Douglas Preston)
“Karen’s a female Michael Crichton. Freezing Point is a terrific read. I highly recommend it.” (James Rollins)

Probably closer to four stars, but...

In many ways it was very original and the writers hard work was tangible. Yet it started clumsily with cliched dialogue and overly drawn out action scenes. Good fun though for the other 80% of the book with riveting adventures and neat structure.

Not in the least engaging

Very disappointed in what sounded like a sci-fi-related thriller. It seemed a trumped-up premise and unlikeable characters, and the "scary" part--please, without revealing anything in case you think you'll like this book, the "scary" part is ridiculous. Get something else with your book credit. I usually can't wait to get back in my car to hear more--this one didn't excite me at all. I just finished it to find out how it ended. It wasn't worth it.
